Vintage Christmas

It sure is fun playing along with the Merry Monday Challenge so close to Christmas!  This week, Deanne challenged everyone to make a Christmas card with a bird on it.


I chose a Pink Persimmon stamp set called "Holiday Hello" and it features this adorable vintage girl and sweet sentiment.


I paper pieced her coat, mittens, and the flower on her hat.  The background is stamped with Impression Obsession's Cover a Card background in Canvas.  Over the top I stamped the Filagree Snowflake Background (one of my favorite stamps of all time!) from Peddler's Pack.


My bird?  A sparkling dove!
The mini plaid bow is cut with a die from Mama Elephant Creative Cuts dies that is included in the "Basic Set."

This challenge is such a fun way to start a Monday!  Thanks for stopping by!  :)
